KYLE HUGHES LOOKS TO IMPROVE TO 3-0 TONIGHT

 

Kyle Hughes (2-0) is one of the fastest rising stars in MMA in the mid-south area!  He got started in the sport when he was fifteen years old and has his first fight at sixteen.  Fast forward three and a half years and he made his professional debut with V3Fights and won in dominant fashion via submission against Alex Casteneda! 

TWO FORMER CHAMPIONS COLLIDE

In September of 2016 Greggory Hussey won the V3 amateur featherweight title in the main event in Memphis, TN.  In his post fight interview he announced that he was turning pro. 

Two months later Reggie Adams won the vacant title and held it until his professional debut a few weeks ago.  These two will now battle it out as pro’s on October 14 in Tunica, MS.

HOLMES PLANS ON DISAPPOINTING INTERNET FANS NATIONWIDE ON SATURDAY NIGHT

IMG_0775.JPG

In 2005, the UFC finally hit live television and it was then that professional fighter Matthew Holmes was hooked on MMA.  He saw Rich Franklin tko the “World’s Most Dangerous Man” Ken Shamrock in the main event and he knew that he wanted to started fighting. 

After 16 amateur fights, Holmes decided to turn pro in June of 2016 and on Saturday night, he will have more eyes on him than he has ever had when he takes on internet sensation, Travis Robertson aka “Mr. Obnoxious.” 

Both fighters like to stand and bang and are looking to finish this fight early.

“I'm excited to get back in there.  I'm going to finish Travis in the first round.  I don't see him standing with me very long after I hit him.   He’s going to shoot and I’ll stop it.  I'm a better striker and I feel I'm more experienced,” states Holmes. 

Holmes knows that people from all over the world will be watching and more than likely rooting against him when he takes on the very popular Robertson.  When asked about this opportunity this is what he had to say:

“I don't know a lot about Travis honestly. He has some funny videos and that's about all I know.  He's definitely the most famous guy I'll fight so far. That just puts more eyes on me. I think I'm going to surprise quite a few people in this fight. Hype is hype. I never let it get to me. He seems to be very composed and the pressure won't get to him either. We're both are fighters and will be ready when the cage door closes.”  


On Saturday night, Holmes plans on making a name for himself by knocking out Mr. Obnoxious, so get your tickets now!

INTERNET SENSATION "MR. OBNOXIOUS" SET TO MAKE HIS PROFESSIONAL DEBUT ON SATURDAY NIGHT

IMG_0673.JPG

Last September, internet sensation, Travis Robertson, posted a video online and it got millions of hits.  It was there that Mr. Obnoxious was born. He now has over a half million followers and his posts reach as many as 54 million people.  However, years before that, Robertson was a pioneer in MMA in the state of Tennessee and has been fighting since 2010 and was one of the top welterweights in the area.  

He sported an amateur record of 11-5-1 and fought for Strikeforce, World Series of Fighting, and of course V3Fights.  On September 2 he will make his professional debut against veteran Matt Holmes. 

Robertson splits his time training at USA Karate, which is an American Top Team affiliate and with Torian Whitlow of Standup Fighter at Prize Fight Academy.  He will be moving up to middleweight to take on Holmes and when asked about this fight here is what he had to say:

“I see this fight going only one way, knockout!  I don’t believe my opponent possesses a strong enough chin for my power.  I feel my main advantage would be on the ground, but I’m going to surprise everybody with technical standup.” 

Robertson has always been a fan favorite in the Memphis area, but now that he is going pro, on September 2 millions of people worldwide can witness the debut of Mr. Obnoxious!

ANTHONY JONES LOOKS TO BECOME A V3 CHAMPION

IMG_0645.JPG

Anthony “Superman” Jones is one of the pioneers of MMA in the state of Tennessee. 

He began his pro career back in 2010 and has never looked back.  A couple years ago he made the change and started training at the prestigious gym, Memphis Judo and Jiu-Jitsu and since he has joined up with them his career has taken off. 

He got started in MMA when a friend of his invited him to a BJJ class.  In that class he got tossed around a little bit and he has been training and fighting ever since. 

He now sports a professional record of 9-7 and on September 2,  Jones finds himself in his biggest fight to date when he takes on Hoosier Fight Club bantamweight champion, Dennis Dombrow.  This will be the second time that V3Fights has hosted an Alliance MMA crossover fight.  When asked about this opportunity, this is what Jones had to say:

“I’m pumped!  I haven’t fought in Memphis since my amateur days.  I’m excited that all of my family and friends don’t have to travel for this one.  I feel I have the advantage everywhere for this fight.  I’m extremely confident that my hand will be raised on September 2!”

THE NEW AND IMPROVED JESSE JAMES WALLACE

V3Fights have always put on outstanding fights for their fans.  Back in 2011 the Legion got to witness a WAR when James Wallace and Ryan Collins stepped in the cage as amateurs.  Six years later and those two will be doing it again as professionals and the V3 Legion can expect pretty much of the same on June 17,  However, according to Wallace, the only difference this time will be the outcome. 

Collins won the first meeting, and although he will see a familiar opponent across the cage from him, it’s going to be a totally different fighter this time. 

“Last time we fought I was a seventeen year old kid.  I’ve completely changed gyms and now train at the best gym around, Memphis Judo and Jiu-Jitsu.  But I haven’t forgotten our first fight.  A loss sticks with me.  It motivates me and teaches me” states Wallace. 

Wallace has a record of 5-1, including an impressive win over Jonathan Burdine on a Bellator MMA undercard back in October. 

He also had some other stuff to say about this upcoming fight and opponent:

“I respect Ryan and we have been fighting in the same area forever, so we know each other well.  This fight is going to be the best fight on the best V3 card.  I will win by first round TKO or submission.  I feel I have the advantage everywhere.” 

Fans can expect the same kind of fight that they saw six years ago, however, the only difference is this time they will get to see the new and improved Jesse James Wallace.  Get your tickets now!!!
